Paper Plate Undersea Creatures with Andrew Whitson

  • Workshop

Andrew loves paper plates because they remind him of birthday parties, barbecues and not having to do the dishes after eating fun food with his family and friends. Perhaps though, it’s not such a good idea to be throwing the plates in the bin. After all, what about the environment and recycling?

No, Andrew has had a better idea, let’s use the paper plates to make undersea creatures that may be lurking below the waves. Andrew would be delighted if you could join him in this undersea creative extravaganza! All you need is some painted paper plates, scissors, coloured felt pens or pencils, glue and anything else you think could be useful in making some amazing undersea creatures!

Andrew Whitson is an award-winning artist and Belfast native who likes to be called Mr. Ando! He lives in an old house which is nestled on the side of a misty hill; at the edge of a magic wood, below an enchanted castle, in the shadow of a giant’s nose. Andrew makes pictures for books in the tower of a very old church where he often works so late that he gets locked in. He has therefore forged a secret magic key which is kept by his side at all times and is used to help him escape from the church when it is dark and still and there is no one else around. Andrew has illustrated over twenty books, the most recent being the ‘Molly’ series with Malachy Doyle and the award winning ‘Rita’ series of picture books with Máire Zepf.
